In the current series: ProRally, ClubRally, WSRC, & CNAR you can win a championship just by entering and finishing. I see a problem with awarding points and "championships" without actually beating anyone.

To correct this situations I would like to see each class require a minimum number of entrants in an event to award points for that event.


My suggestion is a scaled points paying system:

Points would be awarded in a class if there are x number of entrants at that event, points would only be paid to the number of entrants minus 2.

3 Starters (start under their own power) points for 1st place only, 4 entrants = 1st & 2nd (starting and finishing points could still be awarded despite number of entrants):

# of Entrants = Positions paid:
3 = 1
4 = 2
5 = 3
6 = 4
7 = 5 etc.


This would garuntee a championship was earned, and the class is viable (and might eliminate the need for the SCCA 5 event minimum to be "in the records").

For points paying purposes if there were not enough entrants in your class, you could opt to earn points in the nxet higher class: not enough P cars, choose to run G2.

At national events (with associated club events), if a class did not have enough entrants in the national or club the organizers could opt to move the field to one event or the other for year end points. (Let entrants choose national or club on their entry form and then move the smaller group together with the bigger group.)

This point system is aimed at year end championships only, I am sure there is a flaw or two in this proposal so I look forward to seeing different views.
